I Miss Making

Drawing for Isabelle
I’m not making any promises that I’m coming back to this space. And I’m not saying, I’m going to try. That’s just setting me up for failure. But I do miss having a creative outlet. Mostly it’s only been Instagram. But I don’t think it’s enough.

Maybe that’s why, when my homeschool group got together for a geography club, I happily went overboard creating a few things. I made passports for all the kids. Yes made. Designed it all, printed them all out, then hand bound each and every one of them with embroidery thread, all twenty!

Then I made stickers to “stamp” each passport.

And then, if that weren’t enough, I HAD to make plane tickets. Yes HAD. As in I was compelled to and just couldn’t stop making. I even ran the tickets thru my sewing machine to give them perforations.

Yep. Definitely miss making.

Dude You Broke It

Acck! I broke it! I broke it!!! I broke my blog!!!!!

And yes, instead of trying to figure out how to fix it, I sat down and drew about how I broke it…

***Edit*** I figured out what happened. My host provider sent me an email saying I needed to update from 5.2 php to 5.4. That meant absolutely nothing to me, a bunch of gobbledygook. I just went ahead and did what they told me to and POOF! My blog was gone. But as soon as I switched back to 5.2, my blog was magically back. I tried using a default theme that came with WordPress hoping that would fix it. But nope. No blog. :(

Well, today I did some Googling and found out that the plugin, instapress I think it was…I don’t know I have since deleted it, was causing a conflict. I removed it, updated to 5.4, and my blog stayed. YAY! You may have noticed it still looks different though. I sort of got used to the clean look of the theme so I’m keeping it. :)

And why, yes, that is a different header. As I’m sitting here freezing my tooshie off all bundled up in pants and socks and a sweater coat, I thought it was high time I got rid of that summer swimming header.
